Mid-IB Core Workshops

icon Theory of Knowledge Aug 1st and 2nd

Review your IBDP1 learning and re-focus for the new academic year by cementing the Areas of Knowledge and Ways of Knowing, their links to your other subjects, and how to express your personal engagement in your TOK assessments. Develop your ideas to put together a complex and interesting essay, and make use the opportunity to talk through your presentation ideas, as well as any broader TOK queries with a TOK Examiner and expert.

icon Extended Essay Aug 1st

This is a unique opportunity to discuss your Extended Essay ideas and areas of interest with similarly-minded peers as guided and led by Extended Essay experts. Questions regarding structure, research, and the potential scope of the EE can all be addressed, along with any further questions you may have.

icon Oxbridge & US Applications Aug 1st

Our Oxbridge graduate mentors will deliver guidance with choosing the right institution and subject to pursue after the IB; what Oxford and Cambridge look for in each candidate; how to craft your personal statement(s); overview and preparation for admissions tests; interview technique; and addressing all and any queries about applying to Oxford and Cambridge.

icon Maths Core Skills & Calculator Use Aug 2nd

Maximise familiarity with all IBDP1 material, as well as with your graphical calculator, to reduce future stress when preparing for exams. Subjects such as Physics, Biology, Chemistry & Economics all rely heavily on basic mathematical principles such as linear and quadratic equations, mathematical regression, and many other techniques which every IB student should have up their sleeve. In this workshop, EIB Maths tutors will give you a step-by-step "recipe" walkthrough of the key calculator and core skills you will need, as well as putting them into practice on the day.

icon Study Skills & Academic Writing Aug 2nd

Secure your revision skills, note-taking, referencing, and organisation prior to IBDP2 final exams, as well as ensure that your academic writing doesn't let you down with silly slip-ups. There are certain skills and techniques which can be learnt, developed, and applied across a number of subjects that will guarantee an improvement in your essays. This workshop will look at methods to ensure a high-quality, analysis-driven approach to writing in the IB.

icon UCAS Applications Aug 1st

Understand the steps of applying to UK universities before the October/January deadline. You will be counselled in small groups on the specific steps you will need to undertake when applying for your preferred subjects, the preparations necessary to create the best possible applications, and, of course, receive personal statement guidance, tailored to your ambitions.

icon Careers Booth Aug 1st and 2nd

Pop in at any time during the day, or after the workshops finish, to discuss careers and other options one-on-one with a member of the EIB team.

Mid-IB Additional Workshops

In addition to the core workshops we provide three days of optional subject-specific support, covering topics chosen by the attendees, to maximise subject knowledge and confidence before the beginning of the new academic year.
